Phillips 212 motor/belt issue?

Post by jerzee » 19 Jun 2019 01:49

Hello, definitely new to the game here and I'm very much electronically challenged. I have an old Phillips 212 and when I plug it in, everything lights up. However, the on/off button seems a little sticky, until it becomes too loose. Im assuming it just on permanent "on", which I read is a problem. I opened it up and there was black goo everywhere. I think the belt melted to the plastic, which I also read is common. I cleaned it up fairly well. Nothing is turning on the inside when its on, is this also a motor problem? Wondering if I should get it serviced or just order a new belt & tweak a few things. Don't want to risk a shock or fire. Any help greatly appreciated.
